The governors seek to appoint an enthusiastic, well-educated member of staff to join our Economics team from September 2021 or earlier if preferred by the successful applicant. We offer an exciting opportunity in an exceptional team and a School that is passionate about economics as a subject.
Our ideal candidate must be passionate about economics and ready to nurture enquiry. This commitment, and a strong economics degree or background in a closely related field of work is more important to us than qualified teacher status.
Reading School is a selective boys’ state school located in central Reading. Economics is one of our most important and popular subjects. The subject is thriving and has a reputation for academic excellence. We typically have four sets of around 20 students, and the 2019 cohort achieved 94% Grades 9 to7 in their GCSE Economics. We also have three sets of around 20 students in each year group at A Level and the 2019 A Level cohort achieved a 97.5% A* to B record.
A rich range of co-curricular activities are also very popular and include lectures, discussion clubs and student investment challenges. We therefore seek a proactive, engaging individual with a passion for stretching motivated and academically gifted individuals and an enthusiasm for helping our students interpret the economics in the world around them.
This is a full time post commencing in September 2021, or earlier if it would suit our ideal candidate.
A recruitment and retention allowance may be available for an exceptional candidate.
Closing date: Friday 19 February 2021.
Reading School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of students and the successful applicant will be subject to DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) clearance.
